    Brian Acton’s Tweet was a result of the Cambridge Analytica Facebook scandal. The London-based elections consultancy Cambridge Analytica and Facebook are involved in this scandal over the alleged breach and use of personal data of the users. According to the reports of the New York Times and the U.K newspaper The Observer, the private data of 50 million Facebook Profiles was given to Cambridge Analytica.

    After selling WhatsApp, Brian Acton was associated with Facebook until last year. But, He started another company called Signal Foundation earlier this year. He has contributed $50 million to launch the Signal foundation. The foundation aims to protect data and privacy of the users. “We believe there is an opportunity to act in the public interest and make a meaningful contribution to society by building sustainable technology that respects users and does not rely on the commoditization of personal data.” Said Brian Acton.

    “This is a part of a comprehensive internal and external review that we are conducting to determine the accuracy of the claims that the Facebook data in question still exists,” says a California Social media company.

    Facebook has hired a digital forensics firm for the investigation of the Cambridge Analytica Facebook scandal. The Company also agreed to provide access to its servers and systems for the transparency and better investigation.

    We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you,” says Mark Zuckerberg.
